Linda's Adventures in Dallas
Two months in Dallas have flown by in a flurry of textbooks, economic theories and late nights. In my spare time I’ve been exploring the arts and culture scene as much as possible.
Here are some of the highlights so far:
1. Beethoven and Georgia O’Keefe in Dallas?
A tour of SMU’s special archives found us face to face with some awesome pieces of history. The collection, at the university’s fine arts library, is home to an original Beethoven score, a personal letter from Georgia O’Keefe, Oscar cards from the 1950s and Broadway show programs from the 1920s. The items in the special collection are integral sources of research and are also featured in museum and gallery exhibitions from time to time.
2. ‘til Midnight at the Nasher
Hanging out at the Nasher Sculpture Center, enjoying an outdoor concert in the sculpture garden was a fun and relaxing (free!) way to spend a balmy September night. The Center was indeed open until Midnight and it was exciting to see it packed with visitors enjoying and interacting with the art.
3. A play at Undermain Theatre
Missing Pi, I was eager to get a bold and edgy theatre fix in Dallas. All signs pointed to Undermain Theatre and so I went to see so go the ghosts of mexico, a new play being performed in their unique basement theatre space. I knew I was in good hands when I noticed a poster for their 2004 production of Blasted upon entering the theatre!
Stay tuned for more of Linda's adventures to come!
